A jury has today (Wednesday) found a man not guilty after he was accused of committing a series of historic sex offences.

Christopher Haskell of The Rally, Arlesey, was charged with two counts of indecent assault on a female, one count of committing gross indecency with a child, one count of attempted rape and one count of rape.

The 65-year-old went on trial at Luton Crown Court last Tuesday after pleading not guilty to the offences, which were alleged to have occurred between 1966 and 1970.
